    1. Who knows what goes on in a family?Okay, I really don't want to misrepresent this book: The Woman in the Window is a pulpy, fast-paced popcorn thriller. It's not mindblowing or groundbreaking, but it is pageturning goodness. And it was exactly what I needed to get lost in right now.The premise is a little bit of The Girl on the Train and a little bit of The Woman in Cabin 10 (what is it with these girl/woman/wife titles?!), with an unreliable narrator, faulty memories, alcoholism, and the author [...]

    2. NO SPOILERSThis is a solid 4 Stars for me. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a psychological suspense thriller —-a surprise gift in the mail. My copy says a film is already in the making. I can definitely see this novel as a movie. It should be good! The book is good. There are a few other reviews about the plot already I’m going to simply list some random thoughts about my experience reading it. .I enjoyed the premises of this story. Anna Fox being a child psychologist with a psychologi [...]

    3. 4.5*"Agoraphobia is an intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available. Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone." -NIHFor the past 10 months Anna has been trapped inside the four walls she calls home. She can’t bring herself to take a single step outside. No grocery shopping, no walks through the park, not even to pick a package from the front stoop. Anna is an agoraphobic. Her days are filled [...]

    4. I had “The Woman in the Window” on my list to read, but thought it would be awhile before I got to it. But then I came across it on Audible. So I decided to use one of my credits for it. I am starting to enjoy audiobooks a lot more, though I do find them harder to review. I usually have a ton of post-it tabs in the books I read that help me keep track of things. With audio, I’m usually relaxing and don’t want to stop to make a note.Anna Fox was once an active child psychologist with a wo [...]

    5. NOW AVAILABLE!!!so, add my name onto the long list of superheroes who are conflicted about their powers, moaning about how alienating it is to have superhuman abilities, how it is truly more curse than boon. because i have emerged from two weeks of debilitating illness physically enfeebled, but with a new power, like john smith in The Dead Zone - i can now call all of the twists. not one or two, but all. of. the. twistsd this does not please me, or make me feel superior or smug. in fact, it’s [...]

    6. 4.5 stars!! Okay, the hype this book is getting is warranted. I usually stink at guessing the outcome of a mysterious plot, the “who done it” but I was spot on this time (yes!) and that still didn’t deter me from loving this book. The ending? CRAZY!!! P.S. Loved all the movie references!!

    7. I'm between 3.5 and 4 stars.Paranoia, the destroyerSelf-destroyer, wreck your healthDestroy friends, destroy yourselfThe time device of self-destructionLight the fuse and start eruption—The Kinks, DestroyerReading A.J. Finn's new, much-hyped thriller, The Woman in the Window, I had lots of paranoia-related songs running through my head (including Garbage's I Think I'm Paranoid and the line from Harvey Danger's Flagpole Sitta which goes, "Paranoia, paranoia, everybody's coming to get me"), but I [...]

Her husband and daughter, are elsewhere, though she talks to them daily. A trauma in her near past, has left her an agrophobic, subsisting on items from the internet that can be delivered. Her main activities were watching Black and White movies from old, and peering into the lives of her neighbors. It is while peering through one of these windows, that she believes she is wit [...]

    10. It isn't paranoia if it's really happening The Woman in the Window is intoxicating, dark, and simply unputdownable. AJ Finn's debut novel is placed in current day, gentrified Harlem, New York City, where Dr. Anna Fox spends her day in her five-story townhouse drinking Merlot, spying on her neighbors, and mixing pills to numb her thoughts. She has theories and pseudo-storylines for her neighbors, each one being unique and different in their own way. When she is not photographing and spying on her [...]

    11. This book is a psychological thriller starring agoraphobic Dr. Anna Fox. Anna is a house-bound psychologist that spends her days drinking wine, popping benzos, watching films, and spying on her neighbors with the powerful zoom of her camera. One day, Anna is doing her usual snooping when she sees a crime being committed and her life is then turned upside down. This is the setup for this thriller and is all I'm saying about this novel, you must read it to find out what happens. I enjoyed the nove [...]

    12. "I am locked in. I am locked out."Anna Fox has more intricate layers than a double-decker BLT tilting towards the mayo. Ain't no toothpick strong enough to keep this one from skidding off the plate.Anna exists behind the shuttered doors and windows of her four-story home in New York City. Dark and dreary are the colors that paint her reclusive world both on the exterior and on the interior. Anna suffers from agoraphobia that keeps her locked in as a prisoner of her own home and of her own mind. [...]

She entertains herself daily with the following activities:-downing bottles of Merlot and popping pills prescribed by her physician-following the lives of her neighbors through the lens of her camera-playing online chess -watching black and white films from her large collection of DVDs/mostly Hitchcock with some themes that may [...]

    14. 3.5 starsThis was a highly suspenseful, anxiety-filled, page-turning wild ride! The main character, Anna Fox, suffers from agoraphobia (hers is a fear of being outside). She can’t leave her home and finds herself obsessed with the “hobby” of keeping tabs on her neighbours by watching them through the many windows in her large house.I liked Anna, but found that after the halfway mark, her paranoia and constant coping mechanisms started to get slightly annoying. The author, A. J. Finn, did a [...]

    15. 3 STARSYou don't know how happy I was to get my greedy little paws on both the audio and Kindle versions of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW. My expectations were through the roof! Have you seen all those 5 star reviews? As it turns out, the book doesn't live up to the hype. Yes, it is as addictive as popcorn, I couldn't put it down. But, there are so many disappointing drawbacks that I couldn't rate it a 4 star read.For audio-lovers, do not waste your precious Audible credit on this one. It is absolute [...]

    16. In a nut shell I wasn't that impressed with this debut.Dr. Anna Fox lives in her townhome in New York struggling with agoraphobia. She has taken on some unique activities to help pass the time. drowning herself with Merlot with a mix of pills, watching her neighbors, playing chess, and an obsession with her black and white movies.

    17. Dr. Anna Fox used to have a successful life as a mother, wife, and child psychologist, but something happened several months earlier that has given her agoraphobia. She can have her prescription medications and endless bottles of wine delivered, so she never has to leave her house. If she does want human contact, she calls her estranged husband and the daughter that lives with him. Her physical therapist and doctor come to her.

    18. 3.25 Stars* (rounded down).Anna Fox is home bound. She hasn’t left her home in almost a year. She has groceries delivered and keeps all the windows closed. She watches old black and white movies, takes anti-depressants and mixes them with alcohol, lots of alcohol - which her doctor has strongly advised against.

    19. Traveling Sisters Read by Brenda and Norma with Holly, Kaceey, Susanne, Lindsay, Jan, Kendall, and Diane We read The Woman In The Window with seven of our Traveling Sisters and we were split again into two different coulees. Some of us really enjoyed this one and were in the deep-rooted end of the rapturous murky coulee and the rest of the sisters lost in the craters of the dry coulee looking for water and a way outE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A. J. FINN is a fascinating, fast-paced and twisty psych [...]

    20. Traveling Sisters Read by Brenda and Norma with Holly, Kaceey, Susanne, Lindsay, Jan, Kendall, and DianeI really enjoyed the premise of this book and found the agoraphobia aspect of this novel quite fascinating. Even though this book was a little lengthy it read really fast for me because of the short chapters and I was really intrigued by the woman in the window. I did end up in the craters of the dry coulee though as there were a few aspects of this novel that I found didn't quite make sense t [...]

    21. I loved it! This book has restored my faith in psychological thrillers and was a solid 5 star reading experience. It’s well-written, perfectly plotted, and riveting. I had trouble putting it down and became annoyed when life interrupted my reading – it didn't feel like >400 pages and I could have happily read it cover to cover in one sitting. Anna is a 38 year-old child psychologist with agoraphobia, who hasn’t left her home for over a year. Her husband left her some time ago, and took [...]

    22. 3 StarsDr Anna Fox suffers from an extreme case of agoraphobia, all stemming from a tragic accident that has left our protagonist Anna housebound for the past 10 months. Unable to brave the outside world Anna has developed hobbies ranging from drinking her Merlot, to watching classic films, to popping her medication like Tic Tacs, to more drinking, and to her absolute favourite activity watching her neighbours through the window.Anna has a neat little set up at her desk she can see her neighbour [...]

    23. Holy moly y'all.It's been a while since I read a book that I couldn't put down - like, couldn't even consider putting it down because I just HAD to know what happened. A woman looking out a window, what could be so great? Pause here, because the answer is EVERYTHING!!!!On the surface, The Woman in the Window is just a book about a woman who believes she's witnessed a murder while spying on her neighbors through the window. In reality though, it's so much more than that. She's unable to leave her [...]

    24. If you are looking for a gripping book that will capture your attention and keep you turning pages late into the night, The Woman in the Window is for you! It's been noted the story is similar to The Girl on the Train; that's true, but I found this story much more exciting and engaging.Every part of this novel was just amazing. Anna was such a multi-faceted character. After leading a fairly "normal" life, she had undergone a series of tragedies in the previous year. Some of her reactions seemed [...]

    25. This book got so much hype, I was wary to read it, but then I got started and couldn't put it down. The story reminded me a little of The Girl on the Train (which I thought was ok, but nothing that exciting), however, it is better written and the ending definitely more complex. I guessed a part of the mystery's solution early on, but without confirmation of my suspicions, I was nonetheless gripped until the end. Anna is a compelling character, and I could help but root for her. It's been a while [...]

This book taught me a new phobia people may have. This phobia is interesting. . This book has short chapters and some chapters are even shorter. The mystery behind the main [...]

    27. 4.75“Cat and mouse, cat and mouse… but which is the cat and which is the mouse?” This was a debut novel? NO WAY!This was a breath of fresh air! At last a psychological thriller which was different and refreshing. Yes, some of the twists were predictable, but they were good predictable, not the annoying clichés we read these days in some books. The beginning is confusing and it may be slow, but DO NOT give up! This book keeps you guessing till the end.Ok, now that I am done "reviewing", I [...]

    28. This review is a hard one for me. I struggled with the first half of the book, only to be totally drawn in by the end. The book starts offs slowly, setting the stage. Anna Fox is a child psychotherapist who suffers from agoraphobia. As she’s trapped in her house, there’s not a lot of action to begin with. But that kind of works. But a little of that goes along way and I kept waiting for something to happen to turn up the pace. I definitely didn’t relate to Anna, but I also had a hard time [...]

    29. This was an anxiety driven psychological thriller which had me holding my breath at times. The main character, Anna Fox suffered from a major trauma 10 months previously and as a result has become agoraphobic and unable to leave her house. She is separated from her husband and child and is not coping well, drinking too much and not keeping tabs on what drugs she has taken. Her physiotherapist and psychiatrist come to see her at home and she can longer go out to work as a child psychiatrist. Inst [...]

    30. Separated from her husband and daughter, agoraphobic, psychiatrist, neighbor watcher, photo taker. Anna Fox was all of those, but mostly agoraphobic. Anna hadn’t left her home for ten months and even rented her basement to a young man who could do errands for her so she wouldn't have to leave the house.To pass the time, Anna would sleep, drink wine, take her meds that were not to be taken with alcohol, spy on the neighbors, wonder what they did, and pray that no one ever saw her looking at the [...]
